Ken Smith sez: This well-made color cartoon follows the movie career of "Sunny Sweet," a fat, jovial, California prune. The pudgy little fruit is a "local boy made good" who goes to Hollywood and is quickly hired for film roles over dime-a-dozen plums and prunes from other states. We see him playing roles as a baseball player ("Slugger Sunny"), a doctor, an acrobat, and a French duke ("In his regal costume, he fittingly represents true prune royalty"). As a boxer, Sunny knocks out "Fatigue," using "his great supply of prune energy." As the French duke, Sunny duels with an evil Pacific Northwest prune (guess who wins). Beautiful artwork and animation throughout -- even the harvesting and processing sequences look great. "Sunny played many important parts in the movies, just as prunes in real life play an important part in keeping us healthy." All right, all right, we get the point.
